Everyone receives 5 raffle tickets to start, plus the “Osprey” special for $20. There will also be a 50-50 drawing.  The last riders will go out by 2:00 p.m. so we can draw the winners at 3:00 p.m. Ride with your friends at your pleasure, maps available.

A donation of only $30 pre-paid by April 30th; $40 after April 30th. Includes coffee, bagels and a sumptuous lunch buffet and dessert bar. Even if you do not ride or hike, come and enjoy the company of great people like you. All profits will stay in Connetquot to enhance the preserve's many and varied programs and services.
